Welcome to the 2020 Golden Girls Holiday Gift Guide! I’ve thrice compiled these and a few other shopping lists, and I always enjoy bringing you the best of the best items featuring our favorite four best friends. I’m posting this year’s guide a little early, too, because there may be extra shipping delays due to increased online shopping. Plus there’s lots of amazing merch to be had, and I don’t want you to miss out!
This is the first year we’ve had a desk calendar. How exciting! Each page features an illustration or scene from the show and a trivia question, so you can test your knowledge of the show all year long. Get yours now because it’s likely to sell out!
You also have your choice of wall calendars this year! I’m calling this one the “casual edition” since the Girls are dressed down on the cover. It features classic quotes from the show, and Miami inspired backgrounds that even Nancy Reagan’s decorator would love.
And here he we have the “fancy edition,” for obvious reasons. You also get an extra page since this one is a 16 month calendar and includes four months of the next year. It features full color photos and quotes from the show along with lovely, just lovely art deco inspired backgrounds.
Where would these four fabulous friends be without the cheesecake and other dishes that have become as famous as they are? Yes, you’ll find recipes for Rose’s Scandinavian favorites, Sophia’s lasagna al forno, and even a certain stuffed bell pepper dish, but this cookbook will surprise and delight any fan of the show with its variety of recipes inspired by the show. Start planning those post pandemic dinner parties now!
Of course you’ll need this oven mitt and potholder set to help you while you cook all those yummy recipes!
Like Sophia, this book is tiny but mighty! It’s for those fans who are ready to take a deep dive into the show’s cultural impact from an academic perspective. With a chapter devoted to each Girl, reading Kate Browne’s book will definitely make you a part of Miami’s literary intelligentsia.
Don’t forget the bookmarks! I just can’t get over how adorable these are. Keep them for yourself or give them to friends. Either way, they’ll make sure you don’t lose your place in Vanna White’s autobiography or whatever piece of tawdry trash you happen to be reading (no judgement here!).
These super cute socks are perfect for staying at home and binging your favorite episodes for the umpteenth time!
You can never have too many Golden Girls face masks at this point, and now you can add this stylish neck gaiter to your collection.
I feel like a Golden Girls throw blanket is the ultimate thank you for being a friend gift and a great way to remind your bestie that you care whenever they curl up on the couch with their favorite episodes.
This t-shirt is an attention getter for sure! It’s perfect for fans of all genders and non-genders. Dress it up with a blazer for Zoom meetings or keep it classic with jeans for a socially distanced lunch date with a friend.
Sure, this is being sold as a sleepshirt, but anything goes these days! Wear it over leggings to run errands! Who cares? It comes in multiple sizes, too, which is nice.
Forget about boring Christmas cards and send your friends these clever postcards instead! Each card features a full-color scene from the show and well-known quotes. Then you can create your own mixed up scene on the back with the included quote stickers. So fun!
What better way to explore your feelings than with this journal? The pages are beautifully designed and include writing prompts inspired by classic moments from the show to get you started.
Teach yourself to crochet with this kit or gift it to a crafty friend. You get all the supplies to make Sophia, and with quarantine still going strong there’s time to crochet the other Girls and the couch! The cross stitch kit is also still available.
I’m Yvonne, and this is it for this year’s gift guide! Ok, right, I’m not Yvonne. But I do hope you found a few things here to treat yourself with or give to the other fans in your life on this list. It’s certainly been a helluva year, but thankfully we have The Golden Girls to keep us laughing!
